Abstract

Taking advantage of the angular momentum of the rotating gyroscope, gyrostabilizer systems are expected to become more widely actualized as they provide an effective means of motion control with several significant advantages for various structures. In this paper, a system of the gyroscope coupled via the massless torsional spring and the massless torsional damper mounted on the tip mass of a beam subjected to a vibrating base is considered. On the other hand, the effect of the angular velocity of the gyroscope is studied, and it is shown that the angular velocity (spin velocity) of a gyroscope has a significant effect on the behavior of the dynamic motion. Correctness of the numerical results is verified by experimental simulations.
